Weekly Wrap Up II
I wanted to share a few things I’ve found interesting on the web this week – athlete interviews, recipes, and everything in between. Enjoy!
I like what Margaux says about what allows her to be the best at Crossfit – the ability to endure the tough times and stay level-headed through the great times, as well as the ability to remove herself from toxic environments. Like I shared in a previous post, you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with!
I dont know about you, but I cannot choke down one more piece of dry, bland chicken. My cooking skills are mediocre at best, and my willingness to put a lot of time and effort into my meals is even lower. I can take 5 min to toss a marinade together, and I’ve found it makes a huge difference. I will say I modify these a bit – no homemade sriracha for this girl. Just work with what you have!
I would say that my best reflection time is when I’m out walking the dog or going for a run. The clarity, the calm, and the confidence that it gives me is vital, especially in the middle of a tough work day. I also know that after a good lift or a tough WOD, I’ll feel like a million bucks. I know that exercise can’t right every wrong, but it sure does help to clear the head and approach things with a more positive mindset. See how happy we are after a heavy deadlift?!
I could watch this over and over again – and I have. Girl blows my mind, and I can’t wait to see what she accomplishes in both her Olympic lifting (she’s on the Junior World team) and Crossfit career. I love it even more that she’s so cool about it.
The only thing I love more than using my crockpot is cooking with minimal ingredients. Its the little things in life that excite me. I’ve made the 2 ingredient pancakes many times (delicious) and I can’t wait to try many more of these recipes. If you make (or have already made) any of these, please share!
Just a reminder to “Give it all you got” this week!
